Yes, there are spigots available. Usually you are not to do washing at the spigot. Instead, you fill a bucket or dish pan at the spigot and then take it to your campsite to wash up.

You should not use the spigots to fill your RV fresh water tank.


In regards to the trike, I would contact the concessionnaire at [email protected] or 760-924-5500 and ask them about non-mountain biking options. From what I can see, there are not any bike trails around the lake - just hiking trails.

With water spigots available nothing wrong with filling any fresh water tanks manually with 6 gallon water jugs.

That's what I was hoping we could do if there was no potable water at dump station. It's only my brother and 3 nights. I could always spare 20 gallons for him if needed. I have 2 blue 2 1/2 gallon water jugs.

Using jugs to supplement your onboard water is fine. Attaching the hose to the spigot to fill your tank is not.

Yes I agree! Saw a camper run a 100' hose from the restroom across the road to his RV in Upper Pines in Yosemite to fill his tank. By the time a ranger showed up, he was full. Got just a warning.
Anyone know if there is cell coverage at Convict Lake? I read it's 1 bar for Verizon. that meanslittle to nothiong from my experience. Their coverage map shows 4G up to the lake. But that doesn't mean anything.

It's a beautiful place -- nice hiking trail around the lake. I don't think there is a good bike trail in the immediate area. Riding up Rock Creek Canyon from Tom's Place to Mosquito Flats Campground is a lot of fun, especially the glide back down the canyon.

Yes, bring the kayaks, but watch the afternoon wind:

I just re-watched that video -- hilarious! You can't understand a word I'm saying other than "40 or 50 knots." Which is all that needs to be said, right?

Dan do you have Convict Lake in your travel log? If so, what month and year?
